Tell us more about… supporting parents

Spring/Summer 2023

We are interested in the role that parents and families can play in the prevention of, and early intervention for, the first signs of anxiety and depression.

Supporting children and young people’s mental health means also paying attention to the ‘scaffolding’ that surrounds them. This includes their schools, youth clubs, friends, mental health services, communities, and families. Our grants have already explored some of these. This year, we particularly want to support work that helps parents, carers and families who are concerned about a young person’s mental health.

We want to hear about charitable organisations working to support parents or families. If your organisation fits the criteria outlined and you have activity in this area, projects which could be scaled up or a pilot you would like to explore, please fill out the short form below to introduce yourself.

This is not a grant application, but part of us learning what is going on in this field. If your work lines up with our aims, we may get in touch later this year to learn from you or invite you to apply for funding.  We are conscious of your time and so the form below should take only a few minutes to complete.

Thank you for helping us learn more.


  • A registered UK charity or CIC operating within the UK.
